On January 12, 2015, the Junior League of Washington’s Membership Outreach Committee and Board of Directors hosted its fourth Bubbly with the Board (BWTB), a panel event designed to provide league member with an open forum to communicate with JLW leadership. More than 50 women attended.
Women were welcomed to the Loughborough Room as champagne bottles popped and guests mingled and enjoyed the spread of food. At 7 p.m. attendees took their seats, as a panel of JLW board members, including President Jennifer Hemingway and President-elect Cameron Gilreath, began answering pre-submitted questions about: how to become more involved in leadership opportunities; maintaining a work/life/volunteer balance; the leagues positive impact on other area’s in the BOD member’s lives; and more.
“The Membership Outreach Committee sees this event as the perfect opportunity for members and the board alike to learn from one another in an intimate setting. The responses the board members provide are very candid, and that can also be said about the questions submitted. Both sides benefit from their attendance,” said Miranda McDaniel, chair of the Membership Outreach Committee.
